Ideal for Monitoring Population Fluctuations of Microbial Communities

The NEXTFLEX® 16S V5 – V6 Amplicon-Seq Library Prep Kit is designed for bacterial profiling of plant samples using degenerate primers that target the fifth and sixth variable regions of the 16S rRNA gene. Bacterial profiling in plant samples can be difficult because of the homology between bacterial 16S rRNA and chloroplast 16S rRNA. The use of primers binding to 16S hypervariable regions V 1 – V4, which are traditionally used for bacterial profiling, amplify both the bacterial and plant 16S rRNA genes, skewing results. NEXTFLEX® 16S V5 – V6 Amplicon-Seq libraries are compatible with paired-end sequencing on the Illumina® MiSeq® sequencing platform and are ideal for monitoring population fluctuations of microbial communities.

Optimized Protocol Offers Lower PCR Bias and Fewer Off-target Reads

The NEXTFLEX 16S V5 – V6 Amplicon-Seq Kit incorporates a second PCR step in the protocol for the addition of the sample-specific index, which reduces off-target reads encountered during amplicon sequencing.

Low Input Requirements for 16S rRNA Sequencing

As little as 1 ng of genomic DNA can be used to generate libraries using the NEXTFLEX 16S V5 – V6 Amplicon-Seq Library Prep Kit.

384 Barcodes Available for Cost-effective 16S V5 – V6 rRNA Sequencing

The NEXTFLEX 16S V5 – V6 Amplicon-Seq Library Prep Kit can be used for multiplexing up to 384 samples, to greatly reduce the cost of sequencing. The barcodes are offered in sets of 4, 12, 48, or 96 barcodes and supplied with 2 reactions worth of each barcode.
